Zawadi Group's story

Mme Martine is a client of the MFI Hekima. She is also the president of the banque villageois Zawadi. She is 59 years old, widowed, and has six children, all of whom attend school.

She sells food products and began her business 15 years ago with start-up funds provided by her late husband. She later became involved with Hekima's loan program to help support her activities. She will use this new loan to acquire 50 kg of small fry and a bulk supply of oil to boost her starting capital. The unstable U.S. exchange rates are a challenge to her business activities.

Mme Martine wants all of her children to have an education. She also hopes to build a durable house. Lastly, she would like to thank Hekima and its partners for the support they provide non-bankable entrepreneurs.
